As you may already know, April is National Humor Month. I haven’t been feeling quite so happy myself, so I conducted a little research online. There are loads of fun, playful, humorous people out there if you know where to look.
One of the first things I found was the National Humor Month web site of Steve Wilson. Steve Wilson is a great inspiration for humor. He is the found of the World Laugher Tour. The Laughter Tour’s mission is to bring health, happiness and peace through laughter. His Certified Laughter Leader Training is a program for professionals of all walks of life. Counselors, therapists, corporation CEO’s, anyone would wants to use the positive benefits of laughter in their life.
Another great hero of the ha-ha is Dr. Madan Kataria or Dr. K. He is the founder of the sensational Laughter Yoga. Based in India, this giggling guru teaches us all to let our laughter fly. His laughter clubs have spread throughout the world and have been featured on several TV shows and magazines. Laughter clubs are free for anyone to join, and if you have a lack of laughter in your life, joining with other funny folks can help you reconnect to the joy and passion of laughing for no reason at all.
Yet another fantastic place is Giggle Poetry.com. This silly site will have you chuckling in no time. Full of poems from great writers like Bruce Lansky, Kenn Nesbitt, and others, these witty rhyming romps will have you laughing and singing along. Try the Battle Hymn of the Repulsive by Michael Bowman (sung to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic.) Or try Parent-Teacher Conference by Darren Sardelli. It will remind you of the ups and downs of school life. (And maybe make your own job seem just a bit better.)
